Endocrine disruptors chemicals

What are endocrine disruptors chemicals?

Inside our body, there is an endocrine system that usually acts to produce and secrete the hormones and the other secretions which are necessary to regulate the body activates of our body. The endocrine disruptors are the different chemicals that badly affect our body.

Different disruptors are involved in affecting our body endocrine system. These have different form and these in some times causes serious effects to our body. But we can avoid these losses by saving our bodies from these bad effectors.

Prevention is better than the cure hence let us discuss them in detail to understand the nature of our endocrine disruptors which affect our endocrine system.

How endocrine disruptors chemicals affect the human body?

These disruptors are present in our body due to man-made plastic cosmetics and other chemical products. The endocrine disruptors are a huge cause of the health issue in the human body. The human body depends on the glands for growth.

These glands are secreted through the endocrine system.  The endocrine secretions or glands go into our bodies as keys go into a lock to open it. These are specific for a specific cell and this helps to run the normal process of the body.

Their function can be harmed by many of the other factors. Hence these cannot perform their work properly. These change in their cell’s nature type consequently affect their working phenomena. Which may lead to several health consequences? There are the main causes that lead to disrupting our endocrine system.

These may be the chemicals from the environment or the antibiotics or abiotic that we take as drugs to kill the bacteria. As we know that many medical drugs have side effects.

Hence these can cause a sever to disrupt our endocrine system. And nowadays due to environmental pollution many of the endocrine disruptors chemicals or the EDC are known. Which badly affect our health?

Their cure is low if they affect the nervous system. Because we cannot fix a disabled person who is disabled due to the endocrine disruptors. Some of the endocrine disruptors transfer from the mother to their offspring. When the fetus is in the developing stage.

As we know whole growth and other important process are controlled by the immune systems so disturbing the endocrine system means disturbing the whole body. Hence these can cause less hormone secretion or it may totally change their function after interrupting it.

Symptoms of endocrine disruptors chemicals

These include different sites to affect so we cannot predict specific symptoms differently EDC shows different functions. the endocrine disruptors affect the endocrine system of our body which consequently disrupts our other body functions.

Their symptoms vary from person to person it depends on the affected organ which is mainly affected due to the failure from the disruptors.

These symptoms occur infertility rate into our sex organs and sperm fertility the nervous function, breathing system, and our reproductive system. The risk of early puberty is also related to endocrine disruptors. The risk of endometriosis is also related to this.

Because it affects many of the systems. Sometimes it causes cancers breathing issues obesity and also the growth neurological and learning disabilities of the person also the main cause of the low IQ in many persons and also a big cause of stunted growth.

The hormones involved in regulating every process of our body. these are the chemicals from the environmental pollutions and it accumulates into our body and interrupts the body function. Our immune systems also affect severely due to these disruptors. Thyroid cancer is also done due to this because these affect a very wide area of our body.

The males have feminizing characters due to this and the females acquire the male characters according to the endocrine society. The study of these diseases also tells us that a low dosage of the endocrine disruptors e.g. mercury lead etc is not as fatal as the higher dose. The low dose cannot cause toxic effects in the body which causes several other functions disabilities.

Hence this came to know that the higher accumulation of these into our body is fatal. This causes some time several mental illnesses. As we know that the human body egg is produced inside the females which are gradual changes into a child so the protein and the other requirements are a need which is regulated through the help of the different hormones into our body.

Main causes of endocrine disruptors chemicals

Due to natural changes, our food contains several organic matters which affect our body. These chemicals expose to our environment due to industrial wastage and also due to the polluted water and the other factors like polluted food chain is also responsible for this.

These can mix into our food chain by making ways and hence causes serious problems to our body.

It makes way through the food chain and hence it entered through the food chain and interrupts the body system. Nowadays it’s the nuclear era. So the exposure of nuclear waste into the area near to biodiversity hotspot and the residential areas is also a big cause of the spreading this. As we know that these can come from the food we eat and also from berating in a polluted environment.

Also, we use cosmetics products agrochemicals and organic foods which are the main cause of the endocrine disruptors in our bodies. The main endocrine disruptors include the pubs, percolate, phytoestrogens, dioxin, and the dioxin-like compounds dot fire retardants, arsenic cadmium lead, mercury,.

These when accumulating into the body on a large scale then cause several hazardous to us and produces toxins into our body which leads to very severe conditions.

Even using the pharmaceuticals products again and again also accumulates the endocrine disruptors into our body. As we know that the dioxin is found abundantly in our food such as the meat. Which changes the male’s behavior for sexual desire? The EDC is also found into the poultry eggs.

How can we cure of endocrine disruptors chemicals?

The effect of the endocrine disruptors shows after a very long time. So their true cure is not available because a chemical affects the body’s ability of different organs. And medical tests and biological effects are not valid to detect this problem in our bodies. Or when a fetus is in the belly of her mother. The best way is to drink pure water.

And also eat natural food. Avoid organic and other foods. The situations related to this are different so we should use the environment free from any pollution and also free from nuclear radiation because the nuclear radiations also act as a strong endocrine disruptor.  

Also, use the proper toothpaste and other cosmetic products which directly involved in our body. Otherwise, always use natural products and live in clean and green environments.

As we know that exposure to various chemical compounds leads to several complexities related to our health and growth issues. So better to live in a clean and green environment and avoid exposure to chemicals.
